What smells instantly take you back to a happy place?!?!

What smells instantly take you back to a happy place?!?!
Our minds are so powerful.  Be honest now, did you smell the snickerdoodles when you saw the above picture?

Can you smell the Cinnamon? Can you smell the Nutmeg? Can you smell the Stress Away? Yikes! Probably not but you can probably feel the "stress away" with the happy memories! 

I can smell it and have happy emotions released instantly because it triggers happy memories of family celebrations and special times with my mom.  

Snickerdoodles were a favorite of my parents and one of my grandpa's. But I must be honest ... I only like the SMELL of snickerdoodles, I really do NOT like the TASTE.  

Which makes me smile with memories of trying to eat them and like them when I was little out my love and desire to be like the ones I love so much.  

Who knows, maybe that's where all my elaborate facial expressions that my family gets a kick out of watching started!  (Can you relate with a smell you like but don't like the taste or texture?)

Our minds are so powerful that we don't have to have the cookies baking in our home or even have the actual cookie in our home to taste or smell it.

A powerful exercise I do in one of my sessions is to have you close your eyes and visualize a lemon, then I walk you through the process of feeling the texture of the skin, smelling the lemon when its cut open and squeezed and then actually tasting the lemon. 

 I always have so much fun watching your faces as I can tell who likes the smell and taste of lemon and who does not from the uniquely different expressions.

The science studies done on our olfactory senses or sense of smell extensively document the impact smell has in and on our lives.  

It helps to explain why my client sessions where we are breaking blocks from the past to move forward in freedom are effective and long lasting.  

This is why essential oils are an important tool in my Healthy Toolbox for myself, my family and my clients.

I keep a diffuser in my main living area (we each have one in our individual rooms too!) with a beautiful display rack of essential oils to be able to create unique blends or blends that transport me to Happy Memories or get me energized and motivated (or my loved ones when its chore day! LOL)  

Some people have a recipe box filled with favorite cooking recipes ... me, I have recipe BOXES of my family's favorite diffuser blends with memories noted to go with them.  Quirky? Yes.  

However, on those days where I need an extra boost or I just want to have some sweet memories of my mom or a walk in the forest ... well, diffusing can take me to higher levels and fill my heart and being.  

Bonus effect is, at least when you are using the brand I use, there are no toxic chemicals to cause adverse side effects or harm to our bodies AND they actually have a synergy effect in our body thus supporting and improving our health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

This simple act of diffusing is very effective and supportive to my clients who are walking through intense health challenges, or those who are breaking free from addictions and the benefits and list goes on. 

The main core of my practice uses essences to break through the barriers and assist in resetting cellular DNA and memory patterns to aid in creating a healthy fight or flight for your life by releasing the things of the past that no longer suit who you are in such a time as this.  

I adore getting to be the facilitator and watching the transformations.  It blesses me to my core to help you break free from things that have held you in bondage and kept you from living life freely as you desire and yearn to.  

And that is why I adore sharing some of my different diffuser recipes that trigger happy memories or that get me motivated to Be my Greatest Me! 

So what is your favorite smell that takes you back to a happy place or time in your life? 

Share below, I adore trying new recipes!  

I am passionate about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be! 

Be Blessed!

Self-Care and Focus Clarity: Marking Territory or Just Doing The Motions?

Self-Care and Focus Clarity: Marking Territory or Just Doing The Motions?

Click image to watch video

Welcome to Michelle's Marvelous Monday Marvel!

This weekend was packed with affirming and stretching information as I attended a Functional and Integrative Medicine Conference.   You know it’s a beneficial conference when it aligns with what you are already focusing on in your own life.  

A lot of information and decision points where addressed which I am in the process of seeking my trusted counsel for the answers for my speciality and the direction I am to go forward in. 

The video is very prophetically reflective of where I am today. 

Today I am pondering and planning my future steps and focus.  I am revisiting my self-care plan and protocol for myself and quite honestly … its falling shy of where it should be at minimum and I want to excel at being the Best Me I was Created to be … so this has got to be amped up and ASAP.  

I also am assessing and seeking the direction of my trusted counsel in the focus of my life, ministry, and practice.  I don’t want to be like my dog, Tobias, in my video. I don’t want to be spending my energy going from “tree to tree, bush to bush and anything in between” marking the territory with a small “sprinkle” of knowledge, insight, and wisdom. I don’t want to have given out so much in vast amounts of different places that I have nothing to give and only go through the motions during times of the journey.  

Which is why re-assessing my Self-Care program and protocols has taken a priority in my life. Why I am assessing and seeking from my wise counsel the focus I am to move forward in.  

You can sprinkle a lot of area with water and nutriments; however, little is the overall accomplishment and impact.  Yes, some sprinkling is good to help encourage and educate people that there is a way that will edify and build them up to accomplish the desires and goals they have.  However, the main impact life changing, mindset shifting comes from saturating the soil in one specific area and allowing those that need and desire to come and absorb what is there’s to better themselves and assist in achieving their intentions and life purpose.  

TIME for YOU to TAKE ACTION

What is your self-care plan and protocol?  Is it supporting your Greatest Good for You or supporting the bare minimum or not there at all? 

What is your life focus? Are you on track or are you going through the motions running around sprinkling a little bit of yourself here and there until you have nothing left to sprinkle and then just go through the motions until you crash and burn or reach a place to replenish and renew? Are you bearing good fruits? Or not fruit at all? 

As always, I am here for those that are Divinely led to support you on your journey. If you are at an impasse and need some assistance, please contact me and schedule a time to facilitate you focusing in on your intention and forming a plan to support you For Such A Time As This. 

I am passionate about Standing The Gap from where You Are to where You Can and Want to be. 

Be Blessed!

Gratitude & Dump - I AM day in the Garden For Such a Time As This

Gratitude & Dump  - I AM day in the Garden For Such a Time As This

Today my Gratitude and Dump session became an I AM session.   For those that know me, you know that was a stretch for me.  The joy of feeling and seeing my faith and belief growth just from my I AM statements that were written with confidence. Years of the enemy’s bondages have been broken in my life and I get to use my experience, knowledge and understanding of blessing of Freedom to help other others be delivered into their Freedom too.  My heart is full and overflowing with joy, love, and hope. 

Anointing oils for today include Peace & Calming, Pine, Citronella, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Globulus, Trauma Life and Patchouli.   I smelled them individually as I put them in the diffuser and applied to my body where I was led.  Some of them, well, I didn’t take such a deep breath of.   Others, oh my yum. However, as is always the case … with all of these in my ionic diffuser, the essence touches me from the top of my head all the way down to the bottoms of my feet and tips of my toes.  I can feel the renewal and rejuvenation of my cells and inner being.  I want to sit and savor the feeling while also being energized and excited to do what I am to do today.  What a great, positive feeling.  I am so grateful and highly favored and blessed with the life calling I was created for.  In walking and living it, every day is a glorious day, even those growth spurts that sometimes bring the groans and moans of praise.  

 

So, here’s the negative that the World is trying to burden and hold me down with: 

Addiction, Argumentiveness, Being a Victim, Depression, Indecisiveness, Control, Moodiness, Scared, Wishy washy, Failure, Fear of Dependence, Restriction, Rigidity, Bondage, Panic, Shut down. 

 

Glory to Glory, here’s the positive that I am being grown and expanded to new levels in:  

Freedom, Wanted, Loveable, Peace, Fair, Inner strength, Alive, Focus, Clarity, Balance, Content, Blessed, Stable, Safe, Still, Direction, Unfoldment, Identity, Growth, Mobility, Open to New, Amusement, See big picture, Like self, Tranquility, Creative, Vibrantly Alive.  

 

I am ever grateful for the tools I have learned and am continually learning to build up and edify my ability to walk in my greatest good for me at this time.  As always, my special Garden of Eden that these essential oil tools form For my Such A Time As This uplift, encourage and motivate me to stand boldly and courageously doing what my day holds.  Having the awareness of the enemy’s plans of bondage empower me to see it when its coming and immediately bind the negative and walk in the positive to grow and expand to new levels each moment of my day.  


Here's a few of my Dump Session I AM's: 

I am capable.

I am worthy.

I am loved.

I am redeemed.

I am blessed.

I am highly favored.


For me … It is an amazing I AM day today!!!

 

So, what tool or tools are you pulling out to do maintenance and fortify you For your Such A Time As This day today?  


I adore it when you share. It allows me to celebrate with you, encourage you and cover with thanksgiving and praise as you do you to a new level.  

I am ever passionate about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be.  (Trust me, it is the sweetest place to be.) 

Be Blessed! 


Gratitude & Dumping

Gratitude & Dumping

I shared this in my special encouragement and accountability group that I have.  However, I am being led to share it here too for those of you who are not a part of my special group yet but need to hear this today.  (Here's the link to join my special group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2455814451326832

Every day is started with gratitude often before I even open my eyes for the first time.  I totally enjoy selecting 3 different things each day that I am grateful for that are different from the past days.  It helps set my day on a gratitude journey and atmosphere. 

Then I randomly select my anointing oils for the day and anoint myself and fill my diffuser. 

Next, I  take my daily "Dump".  I originally started with the goal of 3 written pages or 30 minutes of writing whatever is on my heart and mind or comes up in my thoughts.  Now, I generally have more than 3 pages and often times ... gasp ... go over my 30 allotted minutes.  However, most days I implement the rule that I had when I was schooling my sons ... to stop while you are still eager and wanting to do more.  This causes anticipation and looking forward to tomorrow's "Dump" session.  

And finally, after I'm done with my "Dump" session ... I do the research to see what emotional, mental and spiritual mindset shift areas I'm being grown and stretched in.  

Today, here's the negative mindsets that are being overcome: 
Not enough, poor, scarcity, struggle, worry, being less than, not good enough, tired, flustured, loss, illusion, malice, repressed emotions, stuffed emotions, resistance to change, taken for granted, and shut down. 

And here are the positive mindset shifts that I am being stretched and expanded to new levels in: 
Plenty; ask, believe & receive, clarity, supported, abundance, depth of understand, sharing, i am spot on, acceptance, expressing my best, rejuvenated, renewed, present, gain, benevolence, protected, speaking out, wanted, lovable, steady, learn from life, honored, creative, and vibrantly alive.

Wow!  That totally gets me going and looking forward to charging through whatever comes my way today with a boldness and confidence.  

There's more that I do to uplift and edify myself to do what I'm called and passionate about doing ... but I am excited to get going so I'll just put those to share on another day.  

Here's your PONDER POINT:
What are you doing to build yourself up and empower yourself to be the best you, you were created to be? 

Share in the comments below, I adores hearing from you.

Michelle's Anointing Oils today: Magnify Your Purpose


This morning when I went into my quiet time, I was led to the book of Habakkuk.  

I went with wonder as this is one of those “little” books of the Bible that aren’t frequented as much as some of the others.   Yes, I have been there before, but my mind was open and looking for what I was to receive today For Such A Time As This insight. 

Well, as always, I was expanded and encouraged.  

The purpose of this book:  To show that God is still in control of the world despite the apparent triumph of evil. 

It was written by the Prophet Habakkuk between 612 and 588 B.C.

During this time Babylon was becoming the dominant world power and Judah would soon feel Babylon’s destructive force.  

Judah’s last four kings were wicked men who rejected God and oppressed their own people.  Babylon invaded Judah twice before finally destroying it in 586. It was a time of fear, oppression, persecution, lawlessness, and immorality.  

Hmmm, sound like a similar scenario?

Habakkuk couldn’t understand why God seemed to do nothing about the wickedness in society.  Then he realized that faith in God alone would supply the answers to his questions.   

We have the same spirit of faith as Prophet Habakkuk. Where are we choosing to put our faith? 

Instead of questioning the ways of God, we should know that we can trust His ways. He loves us and promised to never leave us, to cover us, to supply our needs, to give us the desires of our heart. We should realize that God is totally just, and we should have faith that he is in control and that one day evil will be utterly destroyed. 

In the meantime, we need to trust Him and do our part.   We were created with a purpose, a calling on our life. No one can do what we were specifically created to do. Only we can fulfill our role and purpose. He can get things done without us, but do we really want to miss out on the joy and blessing of being outside of his will? 

Here are some ponder points:

  • Is what I am doing continuing Jesus ministry that he started while on earth for us to continue? 
  • Am I stewarding and shepherding to my greatest ability? 
  • Do I have my vision written down and posted where I can see? (Check out the vision resource area at StandingTheGap.com under the Life Advocate Toolbox Resource section.)
  • Am I walking in my life calling and purpose or am I interfering by trying to walk in someone else’s and coming in second best? 
  • Is the way I am living my day to day life strengthening and encouraging others or depleting and weakening others? 

As always, I share from the love of my heart. I am passionate about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be.   

Be Blessed!
